    Gigantic hoax

    Here's the link to the Minny newspaper story, with Leber's comments.
    This past Sunday, live on the FOX NFL pregame show, NFL "insider" Jay Glazer also reported about the "hippo in Steve Crosby's pool." Michael David Smith of AOL Sports reported Glazer's breaking news on the hippo.

    There was a time when reporters actually checked their sources. Especially regarding stories about large African aquatic grazing animals in residential situations.

    But lets give Crosby some love. The special teams have been spectacular this year. The Fire Crosby gang should give the brother some love.

    The same with the Channing Crowder story. I was listening to FSR and they were dissing Crowder for being stupid for not knowing that people spoke english in London. FSR did a good half hour on the story. It was just Crowder having fun playing dumb with the media.

    FAUX has actually taken articles from the Onion seriously, folks. The guys that brought you Bill Orally and John Gibson now bring you Hungry, Hungry Hippos.
